Drawing Inspiration From Your Dreams: Art From The Subconscious

If you are in a creative slump or just looking for some new inspiration, the answer may be closer than you think. As humans, our bodies require us to sleep several hours of the day to be fully functional. Although, we may not dream every time we sleep, they can come frequently. In those dreams, we see things that may inspire our lives or may even confuse us. Nonetheless, they can also be a catalyst for art.

In the article "The Power of Dreams For Artistic Inspiration" by Renee Phillips, dreams are highlighted as an underutilized source of inspiration. Philips describes how she helped a young artist take advantage of her dreams and utilize them as tools and inspiration for her paintings.

Many artists in the past have drawn inspiration from their dreams and have experienced great success. Salvador Dali, Paul Delvaux, and Giorgio de Chiro are a few who constantly went to their dreams for inspiration.
